When Windows first came out, it needed help, from software add-ons and hardware add-ons. This program looks at some of the hardware products that helped make the early version of Windows work better. Demonstrations include the J-Mouse Keyboard, the Viewsonic 7 monitor, the Logitech TrackMan stationary mouse, Diamond's Stealth VRAM graphic acclerator and the SuperStar VLB card, WatchIt!TV, custom upgrades from Sigma Data, and the Weitek processor accelerator. Originally broadcast in 1992.

Nice historical look at windows
to watch this without the sync problems this might help:
download the clip (I got the .mp4 but any should work)
get media player classic (it's free, find it somewhere)
this media player has a feature that lets you change audio sync on the fly.
Load the clip, click "Play" -> "Audio" -> "Options", check "Audio time shift".
A value of around 7500 should pretty much sync up the audio for this clip.

I don't have a title
PC hardware was a lot more fun to shop for back in those days. It's all pretty boring now.
Audio sync was fine for me, using mpeg-2 and VLC player. I haven't tried anything else.
